Hi everyone,

I was following the Kickstarter but for reasons unkown I didn't pledge for it. Afterwards I felt a bit sad, but also a bit happy to have saved some money. I do have enough pre-orders as it is, and with two small ones in the house the list of unplayed games is getting embarrassingly long...

...and now I find out that Gloomhaven is still available for pre-orders! Seriously?

Please someone talk me out of pre-ordering this jewel

Ok, you don't need to buy the best DC out there.

There's no problems with you missing out on a 90+ scenarios legacy campaign

Did that help ?

I watched this documentary the other day where a guy had so much fun that he died of a heart attack.

I didn't get the chance to back the game.

I got the chance to pre-order it and the anticipation is happily
insane.

Now,some delays are pushing back the delivery time.

Still hyped,because this is a stellar game.

In the meantime,many of my own unplayed games must and will fulfill
the gap between now and when Gloomhaven arrives at my house.

A massive game is delayed in order to become exactly what it
is supposed to be.
Play many games until then.

EVERYBODY wins!!

Russia's gonna invade!!! Keep your money for lifesaving situations such as buying much needed medicine on the black market.

Putin, I have on good authority, wanted his own copy of the game but was vetoed by the Kremlin's shadow government to him procuring his own copy.

So now you know.

This is hardly an argument. One needs to get rid of the evil dollar not to be marked as an enemy spy. And have something for a long time in the shelter after the nuclear attack takes place

Ok, I'll take a stab at it...

1. You can probably get it much cheaper if you wait.

2. Myth was also supposed to be absolutely perfect until the moment people started playing it and realized it sucked.

3. If you never get GH you will have just as much fun playing other things because the experience depends on the players, first and foremost yourself, not the game.

Ask your significant other for permission and show him/her the size of the box and the amount of storage space they'll have to clear out to make room for it.
That should do it...unless they also want to play the game...

Are the retail copies identical to the KS copies/pre-ordered through the KS page?

Nope, there is a thank you note in the Kickstarter edition that the Retail buyers will not get.

Gotcha, that is a neat extra. I wish I had been more into board games around the time this campaign was running. Thankful I will at least be able to pick up the full copy of the game though.

Ok. If wait until your kids are old enough to play the game with you then you'll have an easier time keeping the same group together over the course of the campaign.

I don't know if this is good advice. I showed my wife a picture of the game box and rather than be repelled she seemed to find it horrifically fascinating.

-Well, the box it houmungus, ingradibly huge, and heavy. The game has no minis or, if you bought the minis they are ugly and you have to mix them with the stand ups, that is horrible!.
-It has a ton of cards. Can you really sleeve all that??
-Has a ton of cardboard too!!
-The art is not impressive, is kind a meh...
-The campaign is hard to play, you have to be constant and if you are not you will never play it to the end. So you will have a huge and heavy box in the self collecting dust.
- It it too Euro and too thinky for a dungeon crawler.
- It has no explotation at all so... it is really a crawler?
- Your wife is going to kill you when she find THAT box.
- Then she is going to revive you conguring dark arts just to kill you again when you tell her the money you have spent on that coffin like boardgame box.

And i could go on... but is hopeless you are going to buy it anyway.

Or.
1. They can have crooked teeth like the many many billions that came before.
2. Time to start using that old bike again.
3. It's better then when she's rolling her eyes.
4. We'll technically most of us are getting fatter everyday, so if you can just keep your current weight it'll feel like you're loosing weight. Plus all that biking from point no.2 will help anyway.
5. Show her what you just bought as well.
6. Great, cause you'll need a LOT of time to go through all those scenarios.
7. ? It's your neighbor's poodle, not yours. Plus the poodle probably been teasing good ol' Rover for years now.
8. Salad and Beans rolled in a tortilla has to be better for you then the usual daily baconator burger.
9. Come on man, don't fight the system, it's all setup.
10. Or is it all the others that are allergic?

(Just wanted to balance things out devil)

also note you can get a "cheaper" version if you get the KS standee version.
Retail would only have the mini version which is MRSP higher.
